The nose is of yeast bread, citrus fruits and apple. The taste starts with citrus zest, pine, earth and floral qualities. The Barley/wheat come next. Yeast bread and light fruits hang around on the palate. Somewhat nutty in the end. As far as a Pale Ale goes, this is pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark Golden/Amber Pour clear with moderate carbonation. Thin white head.
Nose is hoppy, mild citrusy aromatics. Easy drinking pale. Light body. Clean bitter finish. Totally drinkable for the GF catagory but pales in comparison to standard pales and IPA’s.
Good option for gluten intolerant friends (i think my partner will stick to cider though)

I liked this beer. It had a smooth body with a nice flavor. Sweet malts and enough hops to really balance it out.

Well thats weird, I didn’t notice anything on the label advertising this as gluten free, though it makes sense given the name. Well I would have never guessed because my main impression of this beer was that it was a pretty standard PNW pale ale. Light hop nose was a touch spicy, hints of citrus. Flavor was balanced, a little floral and medium bready malts, balanced finish. Light, unobtrusive, clean. Pretty fair overall pale ale with good balance and no obvious flaws. (if I was a homebrew judge I’d give it near perfect marks, but this is ratebeer after all)

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a small creamy/soapy orange-beige head .The aroma was tangy caramel, nut, fruity hops and citrus. The flavor was bitter and tart pine, grapefruit and a bit of caramel. Medium length bitter and dry pine and grapefruit. Medium body. Eh.

Unbelievably gluten free. Aroma and flavor of a basic pale ale. Caramel malts, some pine and citrus hops. Finishes clean and light but flavorful. Not bad at all.
